The Biden administration announced on Tuesday that it will further increase the weekly vaccine shipments sent by the federal government to the states.
The White House’s COVID-19 response team announced that states will receive 14.5 million doses of vaccine starting next week, an increase from 13.5 million doses.
The team said on Twitter that this number “has increased by nearly 70% since we took office a month ago.”

The announcement was made a week after the White House announced the increase in the number of doses allocated from 11 million to 13.5 million.
Faced with a series of variants that are more contagious than the original strains of the coronavirus that spread globally, the Biden administration is working hard to strengthen its vaccination efforts. COVID-19 cases are declining across the country, but the existence of these variants may make this decline only temporary.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least one dose of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine has been vaccinated for more than 65 million people. This is the only two doses approved by the US Food and Drug Administration so far. Of these people, nearly 20 million received both doses, accounting for about 6% of the American population.
As the federal government expands vaccine sales, Moderna and Pfizer said on Tuesday that they will be able to provide another 130 million doses of vaccine by the end of March. The two companies have signed a contract to provide 600 million doses of the drug.
